Chief Minister V. S. Achuthanandan said here on Wednesday that he would be convening a high level conference of the officials concerned to resolve the problems in the acquisition of land for the second phase of the Brahmos missile development project in Thiruvananthapuram.

Replying to questions from the media, the Chief Minister said that the conference would be held on October 13. He would be eliciting the reasons for delay in acquisition of nine acres for the project.

The project office for the second phase here was closed recently as the land for the project was not handed over by the government even after one and a half years. The project, with an outlay of Rs. 100 crore, proposes to establish a missile integration system close to the existing unit. The first phase of the project was started in 2008.
